the program that created universal health coverage in san francisco. it's amazing. the problems we have had, we have had are people taking their children to the emergency rooms for primary care. and we're eliminating that through programs that make sure that everybody has health insurance. so yes, i agree with this. and i think it needs to be expanded and it's relatively cheap. and my entire public health career has been in prevention. and what happens is when people have health insurance and they are seeing a doctor on a regular basis or health care provider and getting preventative services, that saves us so much money in the end. and also, for these businesses that are having to pay, their employees will be healthier. so it's a win-win in every situation and we need to really expand and i agree with this program. absolutely. thank you, chris for the question. >> thank you. >> i just wanted to add that i have been in a toothpaste commercial, crest toothpaste commercial, as a matter of fact and because of having dental services since i was a kid through access to health care is

. thank you. >> thank you. >> yes parking here in san francisco is a major cash cow for local government. they raise close to $200 million in revenue from parking here and the variable meters in my opinion is just another gimmick. it parks close to $6 an hour to park at a meter on any given day it's ridiculous. i am opposed to the variable rate meters and would take the residential permit one step further and allow those people to be allowed to use the parking permits to park on meters in shopping areas so i would propose that i am definitely opposed to send meters and saturday meters. it's a deterrent to patronizing small business. >> okay. the resulting economy has resulted in internet base for short term rentals and many of the rentals are illegal and the hotel tax is not collected. should the city legalize some or all of the arrangements and collect a hotel tax and we will begin with you -- i will be glad to repeat the question. >> i honestly don't know how you would enforce a law like that. of course everyone should pay their fair share but i don't know how you could enforce that.

working with -- working on industrial deals on the peninsula and san francisco for 30 years, so i have a long history with the area. i think some of the things important for everyone to understand is lack of availability to find ten, 15 acres this the san francisco or peninsula area. it really is almost impossible to find. as james and sfmta have been looking for sites, you could pull out a parcel map and partially identify 10, 15, 20 sites that exist. they are that size. to accommodate the uses you are looking to replace. from a big picture standpoint you are dealing with a small supply of properties that could work. whether they are available or not. then an incredibly large demand for sites like that. from a land perspective, you know, sites -- there's a higher and better use for most of the sites. you look at the rehabilitation that's gone on in san francisco and all the new development, most are redeveloped for offices, research and development, biotech, you know, housing. there is a higher value than storing towed cars. you know, it is used as incredibly difficult to find. when y
